taking a break....with the news
Where I grew up in South Elgin there was one garage for the whole town. It smelled like oil and grease and the mechanic knew all our names.
I painted this on one of the panels that I prepared with lead white paint. This lead-paint-prepared panel certainly had a superior feel. I have an eye on submitting this to a particular exhibit. I might also do another version of it....and I will definitely prepare more panels with lead white (even though it seemed like a lot of work). (Thanks, Thomas Kitts!).
Painting: Celeste Bergin, Yesterday's News, canvas panel, 9x12 inches.
